*WARNING: Spoilers ahead for Free Guy*

Ryan Reynolds has had a long-standing relationship/feud with Hugh Jackman ever since the pair appeared alongside each other in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, with several references to their feud popping up in the media whenever either of the actors appears in a new film.

The feud masks what is probably a very strong friendship in reality and as such, it’s no surprise to learn that Hugh Jackman makes a cameo appearance in Ryan Reynolds’ new film, Free Guy,

However, it’s quite a hard cameo to spot, which has left many fans asking just where Hugh Jackman appears in Free Guy.

Free Guy: Release date and plot

Free Guy arrived on screens around the world in August 2021 with the film landing in the US and UK on August 13th.

Starring Ryan Reynolds and Jodie Comer, Free Guy tells the story of a bank teller named Guy who is actually a non-playable character (NPC) in an open-world video game named Free City.

Thanks to a program developed by Jodie Comer’s Millie, Guy becomes aware of his video game surroundings and vows to save the day when the virtual world he inhabits is threatened.

Hugh Jackman’s cameo in Free Guy

  • Hugh Jackman plays a masked video game avatar who interacts with Jodie Comer’s Millie early on in the film.

To be a little more specific, Hugh Jackman’s masked character appears during Millie’s (aka MolotovGirl) first scene in the film as she meets with another player in a dark alleyway to ask for the whereabouts of another player’s safehouse.

In return for the information she needs, Millie offers to give Jackman’s character a mysterious video.

However, the masked character asks one too many questions about the video, despite multiple warnings from Millie, and ends up getting killed.
